Haiku Friday: the say-it-ain't-so edition (plus a mild pout)

Haiku Friday

Oh no, it can't be!
But NaBloPoMo's over ...
Blog three-sixty-five?????

OK, I survived NaBloPoMo 2007, but seriously, people. A challenge to blog every day for a year??? Are they crazy?

Is anyone actually doing this?

Just checking.

< pout >

Yesterday I posted my Whore My Loot thingy. And while I was putting it together, I came to the crashing realization that I DID NOT GET A HANUKKAH PRESENT!!

I did get birthday presents, and to be fair, my family made my birthday special in the midst of a holiday season.


Everyone else's birthday was special this year too.

And then they got Hanukkah presents.

*insert whine here*

So I think the only thing to do is buy myself something that I really really want. Right?

Like this:

or even (oooh oooh oooh!) this:

Yeah, baby!

365? No way. They can just go away, because I won't do it. Traffic already suffered from one month of that craziness, and I couldn't keep up with the readings.

I think you should get the iPhone, and then I'll get the camera.

Pamela said...

well!! which one is it going to be.
(hubby got me a Canon Rebel, but I'm screaming about all the bells and whistles!!!)

Toni said...

NO FREAKIN' WAY! I cannot do 365. 1 month almost killed me!

Tink said...

Pfft. One year? Screw that. I think you should buy yourself something nice. I'm all about the self love when it's needed.

And Pamela, if you don't like the Rebel, you can pass it down to me. ;)

You know who is doing it? Lisa at Lisa's Chaos, but she is more pictureish, so I think she'll be doing lots of wordless days. Me? Hell NO!

And, like I said in Scrabble, you deserve not one but 8 additional presents. Since nobody got you any, you get to pick 'em out!

swampy said...

I might be able to do the 365 days if I could find about 360 bloggers to guest post for me.

secret agent mama said...

I'm doing it, but I blog daily anyway!! ;)

jennifer said...

Um NO! NO! NO! I won't be participating in 365!

I'd TOTALLY get the camera AND the I-Phone.

Veggie Mama said...

Um, no. Just no.

As for birthdays... mine's Christmas Day, and I got nada. Mommy made me birthday brownies and gave me a card, but that's it. They say they'll celebrate it in January. Hrmph.

Go for the camera!!

Love the ku. Just saw the note about that yesteday. I pretty much blog everyday anyway, but I'm thinking of taking a hiatus. Maybe I'll not post for 366 days. (Leap year, you know.) I wonder what I'd win if I did that?

Cathy said...

Thanks for stopping by my place. You're the first to notice (or the first to point out) the lyrics in my header. It's one of my favorite children's songs.
And there's no way I'm doing 365 - that's craziness - I barely made it a month.

Jenni said...


I'm not promising to do the 365 thing, but it's my goal to post every day. We'll see how that goes. If I fall flat on my face, at least I won't have broken a promise:o)

Junebug said...

I won't try the 365 post. I may do it but I wouldn't dare sign up for it. Nah, I don't think I will even do it.
Get the camera!

We bought a Nikon D40 with the VR lens before our first was born in October and love, love, love it. Costco had a kit with both those items for somewhere between $700-$900 (I can't remember the exact price but it was within that range) a few weeks before Christmas. And I'm an Apple gal. Is there any way you can just, um, sort of splurge and justify the cost of both toys?

the rabbi's wife said...

You should get the Nikon. I've had mine a year and the picture quality is AWESOME. But buy it from a place like Ritz/kits camera and get the extended warranty. well worth it, particularly for the SLR lenses. Mine get beat to heck here, but whenever anything breaks, they replace it instantly, for free, not even shipping costs.

Phoenix said...

I vote for both. Then I can live vicariously through you. :)

monkeysandmarbles said...

365? that's just insanity! NaBloPoMo just about killed me both from writing everyday and trying to keep up with everyone's posts! i would never survive 365!
